The Antique Grid Show Autumn Hunt begins today. My hunt gift is a late nineteenth century style outfit – Miss Pearl Parker – with hat, blouse and skirt in Autumn greens. Check out this blogpost on the nostalgia a la mode blog. The lovely picture with the gorgeous light was taken at the 1920’s New York Project.
There is a path to follow from the front door, and the hint is “Silly Skeleman is wearing me as a hat!”
I’ve never been one to make it difficult for hunters, but if you don’t move far enough into the room you might miss the leaf. It’s a flat plane that is hard to see from a side view. You’ll see the skeleton, just move around in front of him.
Millicent is one of my earliest bundled outfits and one of my favorites – Edwardian with a twist – so it deserved an update! I’m releasing the existing colors in a new bundle with mesh body sizes for jacket and skirt, new fitmesh boots, and Omega appliers for gloves and leggings. While I’m working on getting these bundles finished, I started on a new set of spring/summer colors. The first release is a light tan/chocolate outfit with chocolate brown hat, boots and gloves. There will be more in pastel for the Millicent outfit, appropriate for spring and summer Victorian/Edwardian fashions.
This one is on sale this weekend with a group discount – inworld only.
I’ve added 3 new colors to the Victoire Boudoir collection, and included in each outfit bundle is a new cameo ribbon choker to match.

This round of Genre has a theme near and dear to my heart – Victoriana. Translate that to mean not necessarily historically accurate Victorian items but anything inspired by Victorian style. My offering is a set of boudoir outfits in 3 colors with mesh top and petticoat, and system unders with Omega Appliers. Only available at Genre and 50% off for the duration of the event.

Melanie is a Civil War style ball gown with accessories, appliers, and low-heel shoes. These are the 4 gowns in the Autumn Collection.
Madison is the culmination of lots of research, looking for women in the Civil War. I found some very interesting articles and photos – see my pinterest list for a few – but of course, my Madison outfit is a bit … shinier… than anything historically accurate.
No woman fighting during the civil war would have been seen in something so flashy and extravagant. Well, maybe in a dress review? Post-civil war parties?
The jacket is all over detail, with custom embossed roses on the lapel, collar and sleeves, brass buttons and chains. The trousers have rivets down the sides that match the buckle/strap rivets on the boots.
Each piece is available separately, but you save on the bundle. The bundle includes cap with goggles, jacket, trousers, boots, and bonus blouse with collar, cravat/scarf and cameo fastener.
I’ve introduced Madison in four colors: brown/gold, black/silver, red/brass and green/gold.
More colors to come!
It’s almost settled! The dust that is. I’m still organizing inventory – took some time obsessing on a little garden area, realized things were too spread out and added a little teleport system, and through all this I’ve managed to keep up with weekend sales and new releases. Of course, I haven’t had time to do much else but it’s fun to have an obsession like this.
My ToDo List includes a section for furnishings/decor and where to put all my historical costumery… skyboxes maybe? Come and visit! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Woodland%20Park/208/185/21
Introducing Millicent! Outfit pieces include jacket/vest/shirt collar, skirt with lace-up front, ankle boots, and hat w/ veil and bow. This outfit complements the Vittoria and Jaden outfits and will eventually be offered in all the same colors. So far, I have brown/gold, green/rust, and red/black. Added black and violet.

I’m having fun with this one, it’s not traditional anything, but then, most of my stuff doesn’t fall properly into any category.
It all started with the jacket…
This amazing mesh has buttons all down the front and super wide lapels. It also has straps and buckles across the back which I’m not fond of, and I wish the mesher had added buttons on the cuff, but other than that, it’s a perfect mesh!
The other outfit pieces followed — cravat, button-up blouse, trousers, hat and the most wonderful little boots!
All these pieces are available separately, but I also made an outfit bundle to save $L.
And then I had to make more colors. Voila! Vittoria in five colors (red, green,black,blue,and steampunk brown):
Black, red and steampunk are available on the marketplace now and I’ll be adding the rest shortly.
